Inooro TV news anchor and musician Winnie Rose Wangui says she regrets having had a church wedding that lasted only 59 days and was filled with drama.
Winnie, who got married in April 2017, says, she regrets having had a church wedding.
Speaking in during a candid interview, Winnie disclosed that unhealthy talk was the cause of the divorce and that even during their wedding preparations there were so many disagreements.
Asked if she has moved on, Winnie said she can now laugh about it but it was a tough journey.
“WE SEPARATED WHEN I WAS PREGNANT AND SO I SPENT NINE MONTHS ALONE AND I HAD TO START LIFE AGAIN, FROM BUYING A CUP TO EVERYTHING. THE PREGNANCY JOURNEY WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING SINCE THERE WERE SO MANY STORIES GOING AROUND. I ISOLATED MYSELF FROM EVERYONE, EVEN MY FRIENDS, AND GOT ONLY A SMALL CIRCLE OF FRIENDS,” SHE SAID.
She was cagey to comment about the main reason for the divorce, which she termed “unhealthy talk”.
“I HAVE BIGGER PLANS NOW BUT I DON’T REGRET BECAUSE I AM RAISING A CHILD,” SHE SAID. “BUT I CAN NEVER TRUST PEOPLE NOW.”
Even during her delivery, when the doctor said she needed to have surgery, she signed the consent form alone.
“ALL I WANTED WAS MY PEACE AND TO HOLD MY CHILD. I WAS IN A PRIVATE WARD AND I DID NOT WANT ANYONE IN MY WARD,” SHE SAID.
“I WENT TO THEATRE ALONE AND THE ONLY PHONE NUMBER I GAVE WAS MY MOTHER’S. I CALLED HER AFTER A SUCCESSFUL SURGERY.”
Asked how long her ex-husband took to remarry, Winnie said, “I don’t know but what I am sure of is that his child and my child are almost agemates.”
